Hi I am wondering what you can tell me about this water dispenser piece? The lid does have a chip out of the rim. Jeannie H.
The Red Wing Success Filter top & bottom (if they match) and in perfect condition has a value between $750 & $850. Your Red Wing water cooler lid with the large chip has a value in the area of $50 or so. Al Kohlman
HI,JUST WONDERING WHAT THIS JUG MIGHT BE WORTH. I WAS TOLD IT WAS RED WING,BUT DO NOT KNOW IF IT IS. IF IT IS, WOULD YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT ITS VALUE MIGHT BE. IT IS A 2 GALLON IN MINT CONDITION.ITS A WINNIPEG GINGER BEER JUG. THANK-YOU

Hi, William – Your jug is definitely RW and tends to bring around $250-$300 down here in the states. Sometimes I’ve seen them priced for more when dealers/collectors put them out for sale, but I rarely see them sell for any more than that. They might bring more up in your area…you’d know better that I on that.
Here’s a pic of my King’s Old Country cooler and jug. These are both 5 gallon pieces, however. I don’t know what the 2 gallon jug was designed to sit on top of, as I’ve only seen coolers in the 5 gallon size. They’re pretty rare.
Just a quick question, is this vase a real Red Wing vase? It does not have USA on it.
Yes this is a vintage Red Wing vase. It was designed by Belle Kogan in 1938 as part of her Belle Kogan 100 line. The shape is called Riviera and it should be blue lined? According to the price guide from the Red Wing Art Pottery book by Ray Reiss the value is 80-100. The price guide is from 2003; I have heard that prices in the book are down by 20% in todays market.
My name is Kim and I’m trying to find information on the cups in the photos below. I purchased them at a thrift shop and I’m hoping you can tell me something about them.
I am thrilled you offer an “ask the expert” service. I spent a couple hours looking online and on your site but have been unable to find this pattern of a yellow flower on one side a yellow heart on the other.
I hope you are able to tell me if they actually are Red Wing and a few other details such as time period and an idea of possible value.
Thank you very much,
These cups are from the Turtle Dove pattern, one of six patterns in Red Wing’s DuoTone line. DuoTone is also known by collectors as Cylinder. The Turtle Dove pattern was introduced in 1962 and was made for only a couple of years because it did not sell well.
The value for a Turtle Dove cup in excellent condition would be around $5. Adding a saucer would enhance the value to the $12-15 range.
My daughter bought this on an on line auction. She has asked me to try to find out some info about it. We would appreciate anything you could tell us. Dick & Jeanne. Thank You.
Answer: Dick & Jeanne, your daughter has purchased a Red Wing Stoneware 3 gallon zinc glazed beehive jug. This jug was produced between 1895 & 1917. With only the number 3 stenciled on the jug, the value is in the area of $150 to $175 or so. If it had further decorations such as leaves or a red wing, the value would be in the $300 range. Hope this helps some. Al Kohlman
Question: Hi Al, I recently saw this 3 gallon Ice Water cooler and I’m considering buying it for my collection. I haven’t really been able to find anything on it. Can you tell me the when it was produced and what you think the value would be? I’ve attached a photo for reference. It does have a crack in the bottom. Sincerely, Ted
Answer: Ted, this 3 gallon straight sided Red Wing Ice Water was produced by the Minnesota Stoneware Company sometime between 1895 & 1906 or so. With the crack in the bottom the value would be somewhere between $350 & $550 all depending on how severe the crack. Al Kohlman
I found these two items while cleaning out my aunt’s home. I believe they are both Red Wing and wonder about their worth.
The photos show a green Fondoso casserole and green Gypsy Trail Plain coffee server. The casserole should be bottom marked “Red Wing Potteries Inc” and “Design Pat. Pending”. The coffee server should have the numbers 565 on the bottom.
The casserole is worth $30 to $40. The coffee server is a very common piece but scarce in the green color. It’s worth $25 to $35. All values assume excellent, undamaged condition.
RED WING, MN – The Red Wing Collectors Society (RWCS) is excited to announce its annual MidWinter GetTogether will return to the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites on Merle Hay Road in Des Moines, February 24-26, 2017. This is the same location where event was held from 2001 to 2014.
In addition to changing the location, the RWCS has also moved the event to the last weekend of February. Over the past decade, driving conditions and cold temperatures have made it a challenge for many RWCS members to commit to traveling to MidWinter.
“It is our hope that by moving to later in February, the weather will be better and members will travel with confidence to MidWinter in Des Moines next year,” says RWCS President Larry Birks.
The RWCS appreciates the spectacular hospitality of the Badger and Wisconsin chapters during MidWinter’s time in Wisconsin, where the event was held for the past two years. The organization hopes to return to Wisconsin in the future.
“The warm welcome and support of RWCS members in Wisconsin will be remembered by those who attended MidWinter these past two years,” Birks adds.
MidWinter has been an annual event for the RWCS for more than 15 years. It is an opportunity for members to keep their collecting interest and passions burning until the annual RWCS Convention in Red Wing, MN in July. With a theme of “Ruby Red Wing”, the 2016 Convention slated for July 7-9 will celebrate the organization’s 40th Annual Convention.
The RWCS was founded in 1977 in Red Wing and there are more than 3,000 members worldwide. Annual membership in the Red Wing Collectors Society costs only $35 and includes six 16-page full-color newsletters mailed to your home throughout the year. For more information or to become a member, call the RWCS business office at 800-977-7927, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or log on to www.redwingcollectors.org.
